    We're still waiting Mr.Toriyama. Or are you yet again subverting expectations?

    Toriyama has probably forgotten that he's made this statement. The best shot Vegeta has at a main role is if they ever do a Planet Sadala Arc.

    Vegeta can at most be the co-star alongside Goku.

    More likely end up beating the Dragon and not end up too humilliated by the Big Bad...who still ends up either matched or defeated only by Goku.

    That is the fate of a deuteragonist.

    Still much better than what Gohan or Piccolo got. That was outright insulting. :catwave

    Its not like Goku himself is less popular.

    And Vegeta will always get a big role in movies.

    Just a less big one than Goku.

    Gohan, Piccolo and all of the human cast are the real victims. Only mook beaters or chearleaders. :catdespair

    Goku gets 80% of the cake, Vegeta around 19% of it and the rest the scraps that are left.

    Yeah, that was a money making scheme. He knows how popular Vegeta is.

    Retconning the identity of the main character is a lot harder than retconning someone's age or skin color. :mjlol

    Though Goku's fight with Freeza was much longer and Vegeta ended up deprived of the kill by Goku.

    Nice showing but Goku was still treated better.

    Piccolo having trouble with one of Freeza's mooks and Gohan almost being killed by first form Freeza make Vegeta's performance look outstanding though.

    It was bait to get people hyped for rof. Even the trailers made it look like Vegeta was going to be the main. Then it turned out to be only 5 minutes of glory for Vegeta and Vegeta then gets cucked by Goku at the end :catflip

    It'd be just as easy to have a baddy arrive when Goku is gone, or better yet, another villain duo.

    Have someone lesser, though harder to kill, keep Goku busy, while Vegeta handles the main villain.
    Let Goku get poisoned, infected, tired, etc.
    Although the only way this happens, is like with Black, if there is Pride or some other reason Vegeta must get the BIG win, or at least wear down the knuckles on his gloves.
    I can see Goku keeping to himself and somehow progressing from his fight if this situation were to happen too, just to justify it.

    I too want a Vegeta solo fight, that actually carries some weight with it, as much as the next guy, but as long as there is a whole transformation between them different, I don't see a viable reason Vegeta gets his rocks off with a legit villain anytime soon.

    Kishimoto said the same thing for Sasuke regarding Naruto : The Last...

    And the fucking kid was in it for literally 5 seconds...He botch smacked a meteor and that was IT

    Its just hype/promo bullshit is all

    No mangaka has the fucking sack to actually bench their protagonist anymore...AT had the sack for 5 seconds and tried to do it with Gohan during the Cell games...Then reverted back to good ol Ukog immediately in the next arc.

    Let's dissect this.
    Ambiguous phrasing. Leaves alot of wiggle room for him to still make it Goku Time.
    And even then he walks it back.

    Nothing to see here.

    Broly is the movie that should have centered around Vegeta anyway. He's the one who actually remembers planet Vegeta and would have had a history with Paragus.
    Or Rez F since it would have been VEgeta's chance to finally get his revenge on Freeza personally instead of having Future Trunks and Goku do it for him.
